Another competitor has been blown away, wonder how this will effect the MicroBit ?
I think it's the perfect accompaniment to the Micro:Bit. We had a play with micro:bits already at my school.
My best analogy is that they are like Arduinos but with built in internal sensors and very child friendly programming interface. It's not a full blown computer like the pi.
So the microbit can be programmed via the pi zero (using the offline compiler if you dont have WiFi) but the really really reeally cool thing is that the microbit pins should be directly compatible with the raspberry pi zero GPIO header. (The microbit runs off 2X AA batteries, is 3V) (I'm wondering if you would be able to get away with just sticking a bit of wire into an unpopulated GPIO header hole and secure it on with blue-tak)
That means pi zero + microbit = low cost full blown computer with A2D, accelerometer, compass and temperature sensor.
